Trey Anastasio kicked off a three stop acoustic run earlier in the week in Northampton and last night ended it in Portsmouth, NH. The three shows are were in small, North East towns that may look like blips on the map to the rest of America, but were important to Phish’s growth and evolution.
As all three shows have been, last night’s performance was magical. It turns out that hearing Trey telling stories and performing Phish songs acoustically is one hell of a way to spend a Saturday evening.
Trey stuck to Phish and solo material for the most part except for a beautiful version of Paul Simon’s American Tune.
These three shows have been great for Phish fans who only have another 13 dates on the calendar to look forward to in 2017. The next time we’ll see Trey is at the Capitol for a pair of sold out shows with Trey Anastasio Band in April.
